Arrived from Daleys looking great (Aug 2011) but Sydney was a bit cold & it lost some of that Kyogle growth! I took it out of the bonsai bag & tranplanted it to a warm black pot - that plus spring weather has seen it re establish & looks good. Has had protection from hot arvo sun over summer & has grown better in this position
